What is your advice about? Teaching outside of specialism
1: Have a positive attitude. Teaching outside of your comfort zone is a chance to develop your skills.
2: Make sure you have a firm grasp of the key concepts you are teaching. There is nothing worse than to muck up on the basics.
3: If students ask questions you cannot answer in the lessons, be honest and tell them you will get back to them next lesson, or even better set the question for homework.
4: Establish a culture of learning in the class. The fact that you are also learning the subjext adds a degree of comradeship with students.
5: Work with subject specialists, either in person or through twitter to get advice and information. Don’t be afraid to ask. You owe it to your students.
